Arrived in Trujillo early afternoon, gonna go see some ancient ruins tomorrow and then it's back off to the mountains for me!
So I've made it to Peru after another 30 odd hours on the road, 3 buses and 2 taxis later! We crossed the border at about 4 a.m. I got off the bus to a welcoming commitee of a million or so mosquitos that bit me constantly all the time I was trying to cross the border. If I ever go into drug running between Ecuador and Peru then this is the border i'm using! 2 armed guards and an immigration official on either side........easy! I had to fill out a long form to leave Ecuador and a longer one to enter Peru! I fell asleep at some point for a couple of hours and woke up to find that the rolling hills of southern Ecuador had been replaced by the harsh desert that is northern Peru.
